I would not go out of my way to visit the plaza which is a fair bit away from the centre, but it is worth a quick look around if you're in the area visiting one of the many artists studios anyway.

Every weekend this plaza has 20 tables with gifts for tourist. If thats what you need, here it is. The highlight for us is the open air cafe tables. There are two art galleries and a couple of resturants.

I found this to be a beautiful place of peace and harmony. It's an open cobblestone-paved square with a few very nice and very quiet restaurants and an old, colonial era hotel as well as the oldest large church in Camaguey. It felt very authentic...More

It was a Monday afternoon. Good place to drink a mojito or just eat inside one of the restaurant around the Plaza and enjoy the people walking. It is like traveling in the time. Amazing architecture. I loved the views.

Really, this is just a little square with people going about their business. There's nothing really extraordinary about it but it is charming nevertheless and it's nice for a quiet sit or a bit of a stroll around the little souvenir market. There are small...More

This plaza is basically an open space surrounded by a variety of colorful buildings of no special merit. Stop for a look but move on to more interesting places.

As always food is good. They cater groups and trying to sell you table d'hôtel menu. Hint: ask for a al carte menu. It can work if they are not overbooked lol. Always like going to this place.

A delightful taste of Cuban culture. The church is definitely worth a visit. The buildings on the square reflect the colonial heritage. The cobble stoned plaza has a number of cafes and art galleries. There is a modest street market with a number of vendors...More

A square of authentic old houses and the old hospital. There are stalls selling hand-made ceramic fridge magnets of individual houses. Very quiet but well worth a detour.

Love this place, I went early in the morning, was a little empty. The main attraction was the 1800 Restaurant but was closed. Also we visit a little bar there and the bartender was excellent. Love the fresh pineapple juice. Astrid, Alexa, Vladien
